Reviews:
This volume outlines the general frameworks of the middle eastern entrepreneur class, the Sephardi elite and political developments in the Ottoman empire and Palestine. It traces each generation of the Amzalak family, from Joseph Amzalak s arrival to their exodus as a result of World War I, highlighting the family s more prominent members. This family biography may be viewed as a vignette of the social and economic processes in Palestine and the Middle East in the nineteenth century.
